Decent Re-make, not for purists

The Good
Good recreation of the original game.

Easier than the original, which is probably good for a Gameboy Color game.

The Bad
The default mode is scrolling mode and it is hard to tell if you left a dot on the screen and where in this mode.

The non-scrolling mode is better, but the board is small.

The game is a SIMULATION, not an EMULATION - so the timing is different and any patterns that work on the arcade game will most likely NOT work for this game.

The Bottom Line
To play in non-scrolling mode, press the D-pad to the right when you are on the 1 Player / 2 Player select screen.
